DIA Suffragette Tour (1 of 2)
Detroit Institute of Arts Thursdays at the Museum Presents: Suffragette Tours (1 of 2)
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guaranteed women the right to vote. As part of the county's celebration of this milestone in our nation's history, the Board of Commissioners created the Women's Suffrage Ad Hoc Committee, chaired by Board Vice Chairwoman Marcia Gershenson. As one of many events during 2020, Vice Chairwoman Gershenson is co-hosting a special virtual tour with the DIA.
Take an inside look into the DIA's collection with trained docents Howard Rosenberg and Ray Henney. Throughout the tour, virtual visitors will see and learn about art that highlights the women's suffrage movement.
Please note that this is one of TWO events being hosted around the same theme. The June 18 tour will feature different artwork than this event. Follow THIS LINK to say you'll attend on June 18th.
